On the Trail of Geronimo
On the 25th of September, 2013, we started our tour "On the Trail of Geronimo." Headquarters was at the Radisson Suites Tucson and there was a "welcome" dinner of hotdogs and hamburgers poolside. Everyone enjoyed the beautiful hotel.
The next day leading the tour on one bus was Neil Mangum and Bernd Brand. Interpreting for Neil was Mike Koury. On our second bus, folks were informed, entertained, and educated by Layton Hooper, assisted by Danny Aranda and Ed Sweeney! It just didn't get better than that.
Tour sites included Mission San Xavier del Bac, San Jose de Tumacacori Mission Church, The Horse Soldier Museum, Fort Huachuca, Tombstone, the Arizona Historical Society Museum (with a special display on Geronimo), Fort Lowell, Dragoon Springs, the American Indian Museum (Amerind), and of course Fort Bowie.
